The story behind the image
Next to the pools in front of the Nymphenburg Castle in Munich, Germany, I discovered a mechanical transmission. It was not meant to be a piece of art but is still actively used to (manually) manage the water levels in the pools – so, it has a use, even if it looks rusty and old-fashioned.
The morning sun illuminated the transmission perfectly, and I used a 180 mm focal length to get this interesting shot. The white and rusty colors of the transmission provide a nice contrast against the subdued gray and blue surrounding it. I can imagine this as a large poster in an otherwise simplistic room. It has something.
